Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Vehicle had experience approximately 6 times the trac control turning off while driving. Soon while accelerating onto freeway the light came on and then a load noise. The engine blew with no prior warning from any of the vehicle controls except for the trac control light. The car continues to sit in my garage because I do not have $5000 to fix it.

I just bought this car from a used dealer last month haven't driven 6 times yet and now this month it is stalling out we thought it was the fuel filter so we replaced that but now I tried driving it again and I got an error message saying "etc engine failure safe mode" the ca then began slowing down and I was unable to accelerate my speed. The car was also jerking as if it would cut off so.
